Books to read for preschoolers

A hot sunny day, when little children can't go out to play, can turn out to be a long tiresome day. You might be wondering what to do next to entertain your child and wracking your brain for ideas.

Think no further, here is a list of top five books to read out to your little children to keep them engaged and sitting still, listening to these wonderful stories.

The Naughty Little Monkeys by Jim Aylesworth

This story is about how little monkeys are up to mischief when their parents go out for the evening. The entire story is themed on the 26 letters of alphabets. Each letter is associated with naughtiness and rhyming fun. Children will be delighted with this read-aloud book that will also help them to associate with alphabets.

Little Quack by Lauren Thompson

Little Quack by Lauren Thompson is the story of five little ducks trying to take their first splash into the pond. Their mother feels that it is time for the ducklings to leave the nest and take their first dip. All the ducklings are very scared and apprehensive, but they somehow manage to jump into the water. The youngest duckling Little Quack refuses to jump in and is left all alone in the nest scared and lacking in courage to jump in. The rest of the story is about how Little Quack finds the courage to jump into the pond. The illustrations by Derek Anderson support the story with excellent pictures that truly bring the story to alive. The bonus is the Quack- U- Lator which makes math fun.

No two Alike by Keith Baker

This story follows the journey of two red little birds flying in winter, discovering so many things on their way. On their journey, they see mountains, snow, trees, leaves and so many interesting elements of nature. They also realize that each and every thing that they see has their individual identity and are unique in their way. This is a story with a lesson and an introduction to nature. The illustrations capture the freshness and beauty of nature in the true sense.

The Rainbow Fish by Marcus Pfister

This story is about a Rainbow Fish, who has the most beautiful colorful silvery scales in the entire ocean. The Rainbow Fish is admired by the entire fish community. They call the Rainbow Fish to play with them, but the Rainbow Fish is too proud and ignores all of them. The rest of the story is about how Rainbow Fish discovers the joy of making friends and sharing.

      A very nice book list. I'm a children's librarian and get to read all kinds of great books to kids. I especially like Bark George by Jules Pfeiffer and Rhyming Dust Bunnies by Jan Thomas. Anything Jan Thomas writes is great. She gets the kids involved in the story.
